Great scanner, well worth the money.

 

Great radio, but the volume is not consistant. Some transmisions are week, volume must be turned up, then is too loud and must be turned down, not like other scanners I have.

O.K. Scanner

 

Go to any radio shack and they will program your local county at NO CHARGE! If you decide to do it on your own then go to [@]and you can get just about any frequency you want, but it is a bit difficult at first to learn how to program yourself!

CONFUSING

 

This scanner is easy to program and use, if you are an MIT graduate. It is a nice scanner, but very confusing when it comes to programming and understanding all of the controls.

Outstanding non-digital scanner

 

A real shame the 160/162 were discontinued so quickly after being released. They are both excellent scanners, with great reception and high sensitivity. The only real knocks on the 160 are:

800 rebanding ready, Big clear display, Clear Signal, Easy To Use, Rugged

Internal speaker so-so, Non-adjustable steps, No narrowbanding
